Here is a link to all the drivers and software you need to put back on your R40 laptop. The one you were asking about is a bit more than halfway down the page, listed under ACPI Power Management.

You need a recovery disc for this operation. If you're any good with computers at all, and do not do this lightly, you can download dukes ban. Again this is not for novice pc users. This will literally and completely wipe your entire computer. Nothing will be recoverable and you will have to set everything. even the Hard Drive sizes. You will then need an OS disc like windows vista, windows 7, windows xp, etc and reload the entire OS back onto the hard drive.

I would try to start it up in safe mode. This can tell you whether it's a display (physical) issue, or a driver (software) issue. You can do this by hitting the F8 button as soon as you start the computer and it brings up a prompt. At the Advanced system prompt, choose "Safe Mode with Networking" and see if it works then. If it does, I would suggest you undo an changes in the drivers that you made before.

My system configuration has been lost. When I sign in I cannot even get to the XP screen, the machine locks up.

Boot into safe mode by tapping the F8 key, select the option "best last known start that worked" reboot. If no go you will have to boot with Windows CD in and select reload Windows WITHOUT FORMATTING, this will reload Win and save all files EXCEPT you will have to reload all programs.

The IBM Recovery Disk that comes with those laptops is set up for Windows 2000, not Windows XP Pro. The answer is No, you cannot use the IBM Recovery Disk for them, if you install Windows XP Pro.

However! You will have a recovery disk, because you will have the Full Installation disk for Each laptop. Windows XP Pro Full Installation Disk.

(Microsoft Users License states "One genuine copy of Windows per One computer" That means you need Two, genuine copies of Microsoft Windows XP Pro)

Does the Hard Drive have Windows on it? If not, install the Windows Me Floppy disk. Select Run With CD-ROM Support or RUN With Out CD-ROM Support. Any of the two. After it gets done loading. type the following. fdisk

It will ask you do you want to use extended Hard Drive use? Y/N
Press Y. Then you'll get a screen with 4 options. If Windows is on there type 4. And see what it says on your hard Drive.

If you wish to erase Windows and reinstall it, click 3. to delete the partition and it will ask to restart the computer.

Restart the computer and reload to the fidisk screen and press 1. and it Will install a partition "Not Windows" After the Partition is installed restart the Computer and remove the floppy. If it comes up saying No Operating System found. Then the Hard Drive is set to install Windows.
The cheapest Windows XP you can buy Is Home Edition for $99.98, witch some stores still sell, like BestBuy.

If you want to send the Laptop to me I can install Windows on it for you. I have Windows 95,98,ME,2000 Pro, XP Home, XP Pro and Vista Home Basic. Thats if you don't want to spend money on Windows. Just pay for shipping.

I can't re install windows XP Pro on my IBM T30 2366-86u

its oem, you either need IBMs restore cd for your particular laptop (model) or an xp pro (any service pack will do) OEM disk.
You can not get the OEM disk at best buy, circuit city target etc those are retail versions and will not work. or frys electronics are your best bet, but by buying it from them you are getting another copy of xp pro, just use the cd with the keycode on your laptop and then you can install xp pro on another pc using the code that came with the disk. MAKE SURE YOU ARE GETTING AN OEM VERSION AND NOT A RETAIL VERSION.

Some technical stuff:
 For the xp pro disk you MUST have the COA product key available, this is usually on the bottom of your laptop, for IBMs disk you just have to have an IBM WITH an IBM motherboard as without the motherboard it will not work. For example, the motherboard goes out and you replace it with a non ibm board it will only boot for 3-5 times, the ideaa is that this gives you time to get your documents off. This is per Microsoft agreement with ibm and all other Original equipment manufactures this include hp, dell etc.

sorry if this is too technical for you please let me know.
